Holiday Monday - Baby Post

Just over 5 weeks ago a friend of ours had a little baby boy.   I love making baby cards because I do not get the opportunity very often any more and because it is always a challenge to make a super cute and special card!   With this card I combined a couple card types I had been wanting to try. I used ideas from a number of cards I have seen on Splitcoast Stampers web gallery.  This is  a dresser/step card.  I have seen a few of these around and thought this was the perfect time to try it out.  Let me know what you think!

 I used Chocolate Chip Card Stock and added touches in Baja Breeze and Whisper White.  The monkey is Soft Suede and the Giraffe is More Mustard. I made the card using the Splitcoast Stampers Tutorial.  The bib, baby blanket and lamp are all embossed using the square lattice embossing folder.  I punched out the base of the dresser with the Decorative Label  Punch.
I used the computer to print out the photo and the birth information then punched them out for the embellishments.  The lamp base is from a retired tab punch (I used the edges to create the curved shape).  The baby bottle is the jewellery tag punch. 

Overall I was really pleased with the card and the new parents loved it too and that is what really counts.  

I am off to the mountains for a week and if I get some time I will post some pictures of our adventures in the Rockies.  Have a great Holiday Monday everyone.

Thanks for looking!
